Finally, somebody asked Johnny Manziel for his take on Ohio State

Johnny Manziel

Because inquiring minds want to know, we now have Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel on the record about his state of Ohio State in the fallout of star quarterback Braxton Miller going down for the 2014 season with a right shoulder injury.

“I don’t wish that for anybody,” Manziel said of Miller’s injury, according to “So hopefully everything in that situation works out for him. I hope he’s able to get a medical redshirt and be able to play, because first and foremost, I’m a fan of Braxton.”

It should be noted Miller does not need a medical redshirt year. He still has a redshirt year to spare, which will be used this season. Miller underwent successful surgery Tuesday morning. Manziel was also willing to shed some light on what it takes for a redshirt freshman to step into a starting role under center, which is exactly what J.T. Barrett will be doing this fall in Miller’s absence. Manziel, of course, stepped into the spotlight at Texas A&M as a redshirt freshman under different circumstances, but he could still relate.

“Ohio State is obviously a very big deal but, I mean, a (redshirt) freshman coming in and taking over for a program like that, I think he’s got a good situation with Coach [Urban] Meyer being there and being able to put him in good situations to be successful,” Manziel said. “So I think more than anything he needs to depend on him, Coach Meyer, who’s been through it all.”

    As if he would say, “When asked about Miller, Manziel said that he hates everyone who ever played for Ohio State, and hopes they never win again.”

    Carson Palmer failed during similar lines of questioning when he was in Cincinnati.

    And if you asked Manziel if he thinks Tim Tebow should use the word Redskin, both the internet and Mike Florio would explode (different types of explosions of course)

    Who cares about anything Johnny Pigskin has to say?

    Talk about a trick bag. Everyone who has been asked, from Ohio State’s most bitter rivals to, now, Johnny Football has been asked for one reason: To try to get someone to slip up and say something stupid/negative/callous. Thankfully everyone has been on their toes.

    His initial response, “You mean that team that claimed they would kick Florida State’s ass in the National Championship game before getting slapped back into reality? Oh wait, are we rolling…” Was deemed off the record.

    It’ll be a wonderful day when the media’s obsession with Manziel finally runs it’s course.

    why should anyone give a **** what he thinks about Ohio State or anything else?

    Thank God this question was finally answered. Now if I can only discover what Kim and the Kardashians are doing for Labor Day, my life will be complete.
